Thom Evans laughs at Mark Wright's jokes so much he feels like he is getting an "ab workout" when the former 'The Only Way is Essex' star makes him laugh

Thom Evans feels like he gets an "ab workout" when he laughs at Mark Wright's jokes.

The 29-year-old hunk is currently on the 'Strictly Come Dancing' tour with the former 'The Only Way is Essex' hunk and when he is not being put through his paces on the dance floor he cannot get enough of listening to the TV presenter's side-splitting quips.

He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "Mark is hilarious. I just find him funny, I feel like I'm getting an ab workout just from laughing.

"He's just hilarious. Sometimes when the tour gets quite demanding on the body some days you'll come in and wonder how you're going to get through the day he's always there to crack a joke.

"He's definitely the joker of the group. It's great to have him."

Thom has joined forces with Mark's fellow ex-'TOWIE' star Lucy Mecklenburgh, retired footballer Robbie Savage and tea brand PG Tips to help coach, mentor and motivate Monkey - known for TV adverts - as he attempts to scale the Shard and raise money for Red Nose Day, and the ex rugby player also finds the 'Match of the Day' pundit amusing.

He added: "Robbie is hilarious. I love his pundit work as well on the football, he's a real character. He did 'Strictly' as well and I remember watching him on it so it's great to meet him.

"Lucy is lovely as well and obviously so glamorous. Monkey is lucky to have her in his corner getting him glammed up to do his mission.

"It's a good bunch and hopefully the mission will be a monumental success."

To mark PG tips' official partnership with Red Nose Day, Monkey is undertaking a Monumental Mission and scaling the top of the Shard from the viewing platform. To find out more, go to
